Tracey Emin is a British artist known for her works that reflect autobiographical details through drawing, painting, photography, video, sculpture, and neon text. She is a prominent member of the Young British Artists who rose to fame in the late 1980s. Her artworks provocatively contributed to feminist discourse with the raw, confessional nature of her personal thoughts. There should be something revelatory about art,” she reflected. “It should be totally creative and open doors for new thoughts and experiences.”
Emin currently lives and works in London, United Kingdom. The artist’s works are held in the collections of the Tate Gallery in London, The Museum of Modern Art in New York, and the Goetz Collection in Munich, among others.
